chat and keep people connected with what’s going on,” Courtney said.

“I will be chatting to punters and celebrity guests, checking out who is entering Fashions on the Field, what the chefs are cooking up, and what’s going on around the stables, and sharing that information on the spot so people feel that they are part of it.”

Damien, who was integral as the Carnival’s Fashion Ambassador in 2016, will reprise his role again this year of providing racegoers with the everything about fashion and style.

“There were some world-class designs created and worn by entrants that would have been right at home at any of the renowned international race days around the globe.”
